For the most part, I totally, completely agree. I mean, having Sayid and Shannon together was kind of bullshit, as was the fact that Aaron reverted to infant form in the afterlife, but the fact of the matter was that I really felt like this was a satisfying conclusion for me. I watched Lost a few years after it… » 9/29/14 3:02pm Yesterday 3:02pm

I actually thought the exact opposite. I thought the plot was shitty, stupid and obvious (I read until the "twist", threw the book down in disgust and Wikipedia'd the ending), but I liked her character work. Literally no one in the whole book is likeable, but I enjoy how she writes about their psychology. I think she… » 9/29/14 3:38pm Yesterday 3:38pm

Ditto with the blue-spectrum lights. There have actually been studies that show those can disrupt sleep patterns. I know that anecdotally, I have a much easier time falling asleep if I haven't been looking at my phone or iPad for period of time before I lie down to go to sleep. But, to call that part of a "paleo… » 9/24/14 1:06pm 9/24/14 1:06pm

The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman. I think before I read that, I was sort of used to thinking about religion as sort of either it exists as I've been taught (as a young Catholic lass), or there is basically no religion. Pullman's depiction of Heaven as a sort of "Earth in the sky" where there are power games and… » 9/24/14 7:07am 9/24/14 7:07am

I'm really not trying to start a thing here, but someone on the MP mentioned this yesterday and it kind of bugged me. If one of your friends came up to you and was like "That shirt would look way better on someone with bigger tits than you...just kidding, you know I think you're perfect!", would the message you took… » 9/23/14 7:22pm 9/23/14 7:22pm

You seriously don't see how Spider-Woman is basically sticking her ass up in the air in a position pretty much achieved only by the bendiest humans, whereas Spider-Man's ass is much lower, at an angle achievable by the normal human body? Her ass is meant to be provacative in a way that his is not, and I'm not sure… » 9/23/14 6:18pm 9/23/14 6:18pm

If it helps, they've only VERY recently (like this week) changed it so that approved/followed users can also pull people out of the greys by recommending them, and not just the authors. So I think you'll see a lot more people getting promoted with that change. » 9/23/14 4:16pm 9/23/14 4:16pm

If it weren't for the rest of her ill-considered, poorly worded speech, I would maybe be suspicious that Paula phrased it that way deliberately, to allude to the mental illness without outright claiming that was the case. But viewed in the context of the whole interview, I sincerely doubt she or any of her people are… » 9/23/14 12:43pm 9/23/14 12:43pm
